Another favourite of John Wilson's Irish Times wine correspondent. "Penfolds are responsible for some of Australia's greatest wines but this one may be the best value, a lovely ripe sweet Shiraz Cabernet blend that really brings out the best of both varieties. A wine that will improve for years to come"
Ageing Potential: 7-10 Years
This is how cabernet shiraz blends should be. Some clean cassis fruit rossed with ripe plummy fruit and all finished off with a sprinkle of sweet vanilla spice. Delicious wine with good complexity on the finish.
